Wittenberg Center for Global Ethics

Facilitating responsible action by ethical reflection

The focus of the Wittenberg Center for Global Ethics is to provide ethical guidance to present and future decision makers in business, politics and civil society.  As a response to the actual debates on ethical leadership and corporate responsibility, profit-oriented entrepreneurship, the moral quality of market economy and fairness in global market competition we face pressure to act and need for discussion: How can the emerging global society accommodate the moral ideals of responsibility and solidarity? How can these concepts be put into practice? Which conditions must be met to do so? By help of our specific approach to ethics and by scientific methodology we address these issues in our seminars and ongoing initiatives for dialogue. Our guiding principle and motor is the idea of social cooperation for mutual advantage.
